As I craft the storyline and grant proposals for Ahki: Brothers Beyond Fate, I am letting the world know who Mahmmad and Ryan are:
Meet Mohammad. He lives in with his mother, father, two sisters and brother in Aida Refugee Camp near Bethlehem.
“Living in a refugee camp is not easy especially if you are forced to live in one. Even though the camp is small and crowded, and every day you are fearful, I feel I have a responsibility to my family, my people and myself to create a better future. I am strong in contrast to the weakness of the situation in the camp. I have my goals that I want to achieve.
“Joining the documentaries makes me feel that I’m not alone. No matter if you are black or white, what language you speak, or which area you live in—WE are all humans and share the same interests and problems with few differences. I learned a lot from being a breaking walls facilitator. It is very important to find yourself—to discover what you are capable of doing, and look for the beauty in everything; then, you will be a person who truly knows himself.
